Welcome to Porchfest Gilroy! Porchfest Gilroy* is a free, family-friendly music event featuring musicians performing on neighborhood porches. The public is welcomed to stroll from porch to porch throughout the afternoon at no charge, free to enjoy whatever genre tickles their fancy. Bring a chair, snacks and relax.
